According to FBI documents, Joan Baez and Martin Luther King Jr.

had an ongoing affair

in the 1960s.

Baez participated in many of the Civil Rights Movement demonstrations that King helped organize.

Allegedly she was one of at least three women King had sexual affairs with during that time, including the wife of a prominent black dentist from Los Angeles whom he supposedly got pregnant and had a baby girl.
